Emacs erlang mode compile

Now that I am back in the Erlang world I am slowly trying to
adapt to some of the new stuff like the emacs erlang mode
compile facilities. I don't get it working however, I get the
{'init terminating in do_boot',{'can not load',erlang,get_file}}
init terminating in do_boot ()

Process inferior-erlang exited abnormally with code 1
in the erl buffer. I tried finding info on the net, and I
found a note by Ulf Wiger, but I didn't get any wiser.
Is this supposed to work with R73-B 'out of the box'?

Here is the first part of the crash dump. 

Thanks for any help
